Introduction
• Look around you…Geometry is EVERYWHERE!
• The houses we live in, the buildings we learn and work in, the cars we drive…
• All were designed and built using Geometry.
• An understanding of Geometry and basic Geometric principles is an essential skill, not just in Math class, but in real life.
• On the fifth grade level, basic Geometry skills include identifying and classifying angles and polygons, measurement, and calculating perimeter and area.
• The purpose of this Webquest is to practice and master these basic Geometry skills and apply them to the construction of a prototype city skyline.
• This Webquest has been designed for fifth grade students and meets the Geometry standards of New York State and the ISTE national technology standards.

Student Page: Process
• In your group, choose the role in which you wish to become an “expert”:
• Researcher Designer Architect Engineer
• Practice the online games to sharpen your Geometry skills and help you to become an expert.
• Create a Power Point, Google SketchUp, or Paint presentation on your area of expertise.
• Collaborate on the scaled Construction Drawings for the 3-D City Skyline.
• Identify, classify, and calculate perimeter, area, and angle measurements of all polygons.
• Publish final project in a PowerPoint presentation.
• Present to class on Smartboard.

Task: To Build a City Prototype
• Working in groups of four, students will design and construct a scaled 3-D elevation of a city skyline.
• Each group member will assume one of the following roles:
• The Designer: will “sketch” the preliminary drawings of the proposed city in the “Paint” computer program. Include interior floor plans.
• The Researcher: will conduct an online search of five familiar city skylines, report on the history of each, and highlight areas for improvement .
• The Architect: will construct “structural drawings” in the Google SketchUp program, applying basic architectural principles to design sketches.
• The Engineer: will identify and classify polygons, and measure and calculate perimeter, area, and angles for all polygons to be used in the city prototype.

• This Webquest is designed to be a culminating project for the fifth grade Geometry unit.
• Project should be collaborative, worked on in both Math and Technology classes.
• Project should be completed over the course of 5-7 class periods.
• Prerequisites:
• Students will have mastered basic measurement skills using a ruler and protractor.
• Students will be able to identify and classify polygons.
• Students will be able to construct and measure angles in degrees.
• Students will be able to find the perimeter and area of given polygons.
• Students will be able to design drawings in “Paint” and “Google SketchUp”, and create a PowerPoint presentation of a city skyline.

The Architect
• Google SketchUp is a 3-dimensional drawing and modeling software program that allows the user to create architectural drawings to scale and render profiles and cross-sections of the drawing.
• 2) Install the program by double-clicking on the file name.
• 3) Open Google SketchUp and the main drawing board will appear on the screen.
• 4) Watch the animated tutorial.
• 5) Open program and begin to draw using the pencil tool.
• 6) Click on paint bucket to add color.
• 7) Be sure to save your work.

The Designer
• Process: Sketch a preliminary design for a 21st century city skyline.
• Use “Paint” computer program.
• Collaborate with “The Researcher” on findings of existing city skylines and identify areas for improvement.
• Revise design drawings.
